Course Content

Introduction: Simulink is a complete environment for modeling, simulating and implementing dynamic and embedded systems. It design’s and tests linear, nonlinear, discrete time and continuous time, hybrid and multi rate systems. Simulink is also a part of MATLAB also with the help of scripting we can build algorithms and automate the process. This section concentrate to make developers life easy and we can reuse the existing logic.

It has applications in control, DSP, communication and systems engineering. Its open architecture allows integration of models from other environment.

Course Outcomes

Upon completion of the basic SIMULINK course, the students are able to understand the benefits of SIMULINK which enables to focus on the academic course and applications.

  • To solve Numerical problems.
  • Avoid declaring variables, specifying data types and allocating memory.
  • Analyze and visualize data using automation capabilities.
  • Eliminate the need to code.


  • SIMULINK is a visualization tool to develop ones imagination into practical implementation.
  • Teach computer programming to graduates by developing a test and measurement laboratory that has authentic engineering problems to the students.
  • Improve the performance by designing a system for the automatic testing.
  • Scope is not just limited to students, it can carry over to get good placements in leading MNC’s and become leading Engineers. The scope is also extended to become a hardcore scientist involved in R & D Activities.
  • With over one million users, MATLAB is recognized as a standard tool for increasing the productivity of engineers and scientists, you will be part of this community.
